Adding the power of 5 to the 90% SABC move

5fm la5FM launches a number of new on-air shows integrated with its digital community this week.

The first on-air change is to Stephanie B's 10:00 – 01:00 show Monday to Thursday. The show will feature a Top 10 @ 10 which will feature new local music. Each day will elevate the best local tracks in a specific genre of music with Monday featuring rock, Tuesday pop music, Wednesday hip hop and Thursday dance.

To be brutally honest, the urban radio station has been one of the 90% local music on SABC radio stations' stars, by breaking new music, and not doing a "throwback" feature that stations have been accused of doing, instead of mostly introducing new SA music.

Back to the changes, the 5FM Chart with Nick Hamman on Saturday, 10:00 – 14:00 will be divided into two separate charts. An SA Top 30 and an Around the World Top 10. The SA Top 30 will take place between 10:00-12:00, with the Around the World Top 10 (international Top 10) taking over between 12:00 – 13:00 building up to the country's Top 10 songs wrapping up the show between 13:00 – 14:00.

A full digital offering of Around the World will come into effect providing the 5FM Live Loud community with three different ways of accessing 5FM's international chart. The first being the Top 10 chart show on the Saturday. The second is a 24/7 stream of the hottest international tracks on a loop available on

And finally, 5FM TV will host a YouTube version of Around the World with the Top 10 songs on a curated music video playlist available on
5FM's Sunday show with Mixi, 10:00 – 14:00 will feature a property called 5FM Legends that will broadcast throwbacks with a different South African music legend co-hosting alongside Mixi.
